A dirty hit by Kevan Miller on Dale Weise took the 4th liner for the Montreal Canadiens out of the game, but the ensuing fight between Miller and Travis Moen ended up putting the Canadiens down two men for at least one game. It couldn't have come at a worse time either, with the Habs facing the best team in the Eastern Conference in the incredibly deep, well-coached Boston Bruins.
The Bruins haven't stopped the goon show since the hit either, with Shawn Thornton trying to fight Andrei Markov. Because Thornton. Classy.
With Lars Eller and Brandon Prust already injured, the Canadiens depth will be truly tested in this extremely busy week, which includes a back-to-back set with the Buffalo Sabres upcoming on Tuesday night.
No further information has been given on the status of Moen and Weise, but we will update you as the Canadiens give us something to work with.
